Co-Presented with Taulia
Date: Tuesday, July 17th, 2018
Time: 11:00AM – 12:00PM EST
Where: This is an online event.
Cash and liquidity management has long been a top priority for treasury. Expectations have expanded to include visibility past their own cash positions and funding strategies to cash flows of their suppliers. This expanded view traditionally requires extensive manual effort by treasury. By leveraging the power of AI to analyze vast quantities of 3rd party and supplier data, treasury teams are able to determine which suppliers will take early payment, as well as the optimal time and rates to use. AI can also determine the proper mix of self-funding and third-party cash to employ resulting in better decisions yielding smarter lower risk investments and increasing yield or deploying third-party cash to improve working capital usage.
This session will provide an overview of supply chain finance and treasury’s role within the cash conversion process and then dive into how new technologies and services are providing better insights, expanded automation, and operational efficiency for organizations.
1.2 CTP and FP&A re-certification credits will be given for this webinar.

The Liquidity Risk Survey was first run in 2011, probing treasury and finance practitioners on their views surrounding managing liquidity, investing, borrowing, and various risks. This webinar will cover highlights from the survey’s most recent iteration. With a total of 11 years of longitudinal data, the webinar will consider shifts over time in areas such as counterparty exposure monitoring, investment vehicle use, ESG programs, the relative prioritization of safety, liquidity, and yield, and more.
The treasury management system (TMS) automates and streamlines treasury’s core tasks, forming a central dashboard for the treasury function and freeing staff for more strategic work. Recent years have seen some TMS vendors expanding into enterprise-wide solutions for tracking and managing liquidity, giving rise to the distinct enterprise liquidity management (ELM) category. From the basic TMS to the highly advanced TMS and the more comprehensive ELM system, each solution serves a segment of treasury departments. This webinar will cover the current TMS and ELM landscapes, innovations, and leading practices for selection and implementation.
2023 is coming to a close with notable upheaval. Significant wars continue in Europe and the Middle East; central banks have increased borrowing costs to the highest rate in well over a decade; inflation has pulled back from the peak but remains above targets; borrowing costs and access to capital have tightened; FX risks remain elevated; and many CFOs are exhibiting increased caution. Several questions come up as we consider the outlook for 2024:
• How will companies need to respond to this greater recognition of the risk level?
• Are companies going to leverage their balance sheet for liquidity and supporting their trading partners?
• How does technology fit into the picture as an enabler of overhead scalability and financial resiliency?
